May Spa Specials at Borgata

May Spa SpecialsWhen it comes to months of the year, there’s no month quite like May.

Unless you live in the southern hemisphere, where May is like November. But we don’t.

Nope, here in Atlantic City, May is the ultimate spring month marching itself towards Memorial Day and another glorious summer season at the Jersey Shore. Not that anyone is all that anxious to get through May, of course.

May is the month of May Day, the Kentucky Derby and the Indy 500. It’s also a month of flowers, warm breezes (with any luck) and rejuvenation.

Yes, there’s that word again—rejuvenation—which means May spa specials at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

This month our relaxation experts give you a May Day Get Away, European style facials and pedicures using apple blossoms and kumquats. Look, folks who can get kumquats into a pedicure are absolutely experts.

So in this very merry month, why not take a much-deserved break, brace yourself for the upcoming summer season and basically indulge yourself with a Borgata spa treatment?

I mean really, it’s not like it’s November.

Steve Angello at Borgata’s MIXX May 16

Steve AngelloThere was a time when the only place to hear dance music was in a dance club. Sounds simple enough.

But then came groups like Swedish House Mafia, who took dance music the festival route and proved a dance music show could fill American arenas—make that big American arenas.

But for DJs like Steve Angello—the former Swedish House Mafia member who plays MIXX May 16 with Sebjak and opening and closing sets by Borgata DJ Carlos Melange—those old club days never left him.

And Borgata Nightlife is proud to be part of his current North American club tour.

Angello has always worked apart from Swedish House Mafia and produced a string of club hits that stretches back to 2004 when he released his remix of the classic Eurythmics’ tune “Sweet Dreams.”

He’s a Greek-born, Swedish raised DJ that also produces and owns his own record label. From there, it’s hard to keep track of absolutely everything he has produced—sometimes using different names—and put out.

It’s easier to keep track of Swedish House Mafia, which was composed of him, Sebastian Ingrosso and Axwell. Together they have produced hits such as “Save the World”, “Antidote”, “Greyhound”, “One”,”Miami 2 Ibiza” and “Don’t You Worry Child”.

Of course, the group has split, but Angello downplays any rumors of a rift between the mates.

Woodford Reserve Barrel-Aged Cocktails Savor Borgata Event May 16

Woodford Reserve Barrel-Aged CocktailsThis is a tale of two amazing things that when put together, result in a Savor Borgata event that’s going to blow your mind.

First up is the barrel. Yes, the simple barrel of the roll out the, over the, and barrel through variety.

Sure it may seem like some simple construction of wood slats and metal bands, but once constructed—and combined with liquor—it’s one of the most important flavoring agents in the distilling and brewing industry.

Think about it. They age whiskey, bourbon, scotch, rum, tequila, beer, wine and sherry in barrels to add to the spirit’s distinctive taste, color and body. Hey, they even age Tabasco sauce and vinegar in barrels (but that’s another story).

Next up is the simple bartender, the mixologist, the cocktail slinger. These humble purveyor of drinks are always looking to find that edge, that extra ingredient or element that puts their cocktails over the top into new territory.

So it’s not surprising that some of those wily bartenders—including ours here at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa—hit on the idea of finding some old whiskey and wine barrels and aging their own cocktails in them.

Thus another trend was born—the barrel-aged cocktail. And on May 16 in Long Bar, the Savor Borgata Series will present a Woodford Reserve Barrel-Aged Cocktails Lunch. Specially made cocktails featuring Woodford Reserve whiskeys will be aged in Woodford Reserve barrels and pared with a menu by Borgata’s Executive Chef Thomas Biglan.

Watch Mayweather vs. Pacquiao at Borgata May 2

Mayweather vs. PacquiaoThe boxing world is all abuzz these days as we count down to the Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao fight May 2 from Las Vegas.

And rightly so. A fight this big hasn’t come around in years.

Call it the “Fight of the Century” (Hey, we’re 15 years into the century now), as this welterweight championship fight between eight-division world champion Pacquiao and undefeated, five-division world champion Mayweather is a boxing fan’s dream—one that’s been stewing for more than five years as details of the fight were worked out.

And while the super fight may have been banished to the dusty confines of Nevada, Borgata and Atlantic City are right on top of the action. In fact, Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa offers up the best viewing package you’ll see on the East Coast.

Tickets to our private big screen viewing at The Music Box on fight night went fast, but that hardly leaves fight fans out in the cold.

Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa is transforming itself into Mayweather vs. Pacquiao land as the fight will be on our screens all over Borgata.

Borgata Online Winners for April 13 – 19

Raging Rhino Game ScreenshotOne of the great things about online slots these days are the cool themes the games employ. You get things like Kitty Glitter, Biker Pigs and Going Nuts (with an appropriate squirrel theme).

It’s all so much more creative than the old-school bells and cherries.

So you gotta love it when you hear that one of BorgataCasino.com’s newest games from Williams Interactive—Raging Rhino—scored one of our big online jackpots for the week of April 13-19.

Clearly, a relaxed rhino or a recalcitrant rhino wouldn’t have been the same.

It’s also the second time in two weeks that a WMS game has hit a big jackpot shortly going online. Just nine days after going live, the slot paid out close to $18K.

Now that’s a rewarding rhino.

Here’s the list of big online winners for April 13 – 19.

BorgataCasino.com:

– On April 16, Scott from Mount Laurel, New Jersey, did a $6 spin playing the Monopoly Level Up Plus slots game and won $3,680.

Borgata’s Water Club Hotel – An Exercise in Elegance

The Water ClubAtlantic City regulars have made Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa the number 1 casino hotel destination in the area since 2003. And it’s easy to figure out why. With Borgata’s headliner shows, great nightlife, first class dining, casino and poker room, how could anyone doubt it would become the leader in Atlantic City?

But Atlantic City insiders also know that it was in 2007 when Borgata truly became a complete destination with the opening of The Water Club Hotel.

Just check out the amenities at The Water Club, which completed the $600 million master plan for Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

The 43-story, $400 million hotel features 800 guestrooms and suites; Immersion, a two-story spa on the 32nd floor, 18,000 square feet of meeting and event space; three Residences modeled after chic, urban lofts; five heated pools – indoor and outdoor, each offering a distinct experience; and boutique retail shops including Hugo Boss, Just Cavalli and Fixation, while offering direct access to and from Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa.

That’s straight out of the brochure, but anyone who regularly stays at The Water Club will tell you there’s so much more to the experience than a simple list can convey. In a word, it’s elegance.

The Water Club offers two room styles—the Vista Room and the Club Room.

Check out this resume for a Vista room:

Tony Orlando at Borgata’s Music Box May 15

tony-orlandoWhen push came to shove, even Geraldo Rivera knew who to turn to when he needed to pack in an audience during the final challenge of “Celebrity Apprentice.”

He went with Tony Orlando.

Because really, who doesn’t love Tony Orlando?

If you were around at all in the 1970s, the mere mention of Orlando’s name starts the tune “Knock Three Times” playing in your head.

Of course, that’s just one of the hits Orlando, now 71, will bring with him to Borgata’s Music Box for a May 15 concert (not to mention one of the great mustaches in entertainment history).

Orlando’s run with two different incarnations of Tony Orlando and Dawn (most famously with Telma Hopkins and Joyce Vincent Wilson) produced a number of hits that have a way of sticking in your head such as “Candida,” “Tie a Yellow Ribbon Round the Ole Oak Tree” and “He Don’t Love You (Like I Love You).”

From there it was a successful TV run with “The Tony Orlando and Dawn Show” and 70s super-stardom.

Not bad for a former singer who had found a career in the business and producing side of music before being lured back to performing.

Margarita Madness at Gypsy Bar May 2

Margarita MadnessHere’s a quick riddle, appropriate for the fast approaching Cinco de Mayo celebration at Borgata Hotel Casino & Spa.

What do former Zeigfield dancer Marjorie King, ambassador’s daughter Margarita Henkel and Dallas socialite Margarita Sames have in common?

Never heard of them you say? Yet, you may regularly imbibe their namesake every time you have a Margarita.

Yep, all three are said to be the inspiration for the tequila cocktail the

argarita at various times and at various Mexican bars in the late 30s and early 40s.

Even singer Peggy Lee (Peggy being a nickname for Margaret) can stake her claim to one of the many origin stories—this time in Galveston, Texas—that surround this cocktail consisting of tequila, triple sec and lime or lemon juice.

And who’s to say who’s right or wrong and which Margarita started it all?

What we do know, is that there’s no better celebration of the Margarita than at Borgata’s Gypsy Bar, where the Savor Borgata Series will offer up Margarita Madness at 4pm Saturday, May 2. For $39, the event features Casamigos Tequila at Borgata’s rock n’ roll Tequila bar where you can mix and mingle while sipping on Margaritas and noshing on small bites.
